Nope, the patches only allow you to set INADDR_NONE as an address for
an interface, and configure routing, that doesn't fix it, udp_sendmsg()
and ip_route_output_slow() don't touch the inet_device associated with
the output interface, udp_sendmsg() passes the socket bound device's
index as an argument to ip_route_output() wich uses it _only_ when
resolving an output route fails, wich is the case when the interfaces
on your system have no addresses.
